I think I was surprised that Demilichs weren't half-demon, half-undead which was what I always thought of them as.
Liches are all undead. The difference I guess is that normal/master liches are plain "zombie/ghoul" type of undead (based on rotten flesh) and archliches have reached a state of pure energy (ghost-like). Demiliches are in the middle.

One might think so purely from the names, but if I remember my 1E MM2 correctly, a Demilich is in fact the ultimate incarnation: a half-gone shadow of a former (arch)lich. That's the almost-pure-energy form.

Presumably the rank and file are just regular Easterling blokes who joined the army to see Middle-Earth. :-)
